Fatal car crash claims life of former politician

Deadly accidents on the nation's roads happen everyday, but Ohio residents may have heard about one fatal car crash that made national headlines. The sibling of a former U.S. Supreme Court justice was hit in a head-on collision and hit again from behind. The two other drivers were hospitalized in stable condition. Police suspected an impaired driver was at fault.

The automobile accident occurred on May 7 at 7:40 a.m. on a split road in Pima County, Arizona. The deceased victim of the car crash was a former state senator and county supervisor, as well as being the younger sibling of former Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.

The accident investigation found that the woman was traveling east when another driver crossed the median and hit her head on. The initial collision was compounded by a third vehicle also traveling east who hit ner car from behind. The driver of the car that crossed the median had been speeding and making erratic movements on the road, according to the sheriff of Pima County. The woman was pronounced dead at the hospital. The other two drivers were being treated for serious injury. Senator John McCain did offer condolences upon hearing the news.

Even safe and defensive motorists can face unexpected hazards on Ohio roadways, and one common such risk is another negligent driver. Even a non-fatal car accident can result in extreme pain and suffering for victims and their families, as they contend with the costs and emotional upheaval of things like rehabilitation, permanent disability, ongoing medical treatment, and a lost or damaged lifestyle. At such a time, victims find it difficult to focus on financial matters and may want to turn to a personal injury attorney who can seek compensation on their behalf through a lawsuit filed against the at-fault party.
